Residential Life

Television, Phones, and Internet

What telephone service is available?
The College no longer provides active dial tone in individual residence hall rooms.  For students' convenience, a campus phone is located on each residence hall floor.  Students who wish to have dial tone in their room can request service by contacting the Campus Technology Services (CTS) Help Desk at help@oswego.edu.  Students can also arrange for local and long distance service at this address.

Getting Connected - What’s the Connection?
ResNet is the College’s acronym for our Residential Network. All campus residence halls are connected to ResNet via Ethernet in each residence hall room. In order to activate this connection, students must first have an activated Instructional Technologies e-mail account.  

What television service is available on campus?
Residence hall rooms receive access to cable television and each hall has at least one television lounge. Each room will be provided with a list of stations accessible with a cable-ready television. Residents can also arrange for additional programming packages directly with Time Warner. Specific information about these packages will be available in the residence halls.
